ABOUT

When you lead a busy life or are recovering from injury it’s difficult to ensure your body is getting all the nutrients it needs, no matter how healthy your diet is. Feeling tired with no energy could mean you’re deficient in some essential vitamins and nutrients.

Clinical Nutritionist, Preeti Pusalkar, CNS. shares her wealth of knowledge in nutrition, providing expert advice on how to eat intelligently, and well, according to your individual physiology. With a particular interest in weight loss and detox, Preeti is unique in her approach, believing that the key to achieving optimal health and nutrition is in forming good life-long food habits.

After an in-depth health assessment using micronutrient testing (if necessary), DXA bone and fat density scans, Preeti tailors nutrition programs to meet your personal health needs. Her integrative approach combines nutrient-dense, pro-metabolic foods suited to your physiology, medicinal superfoods and dietary supplementation where needed.

NUTRACEUTICALS

At Hudson Wellness we believe in incorporating *medical foods, supplements and certain vitamins as part of your treatment protocol. In addition to a healthy and balanced diet, dietary supplementation can offer a practical solution for remedying nutritional deficiencies.

Many treatments with conventional medications can produce imbalances in physiological systems in the body (for example antibiotics or pain medications). Supplements can help correct some of these deficiencies,positively augment these treatments, limit some of the potential side effects, and may assist in homeostasis as well as maintenance of overall health and wellness.

Every treatment protocol will be customized to a patient’s profile, and medically tuned based on lab work, nutritional status, coexisting diseases and medications, and overall state of health. These treatments are medically supervised and will often involve medical doctors, the nutritionist in conjunction with other specialists as needed.

All our products are top quality, and have GMP or the Good Manufacturing Practices certification.This ensures that all products meet label potency and are free of contaminants.

*A food which is formulated to be consumed or administered enterally under the supervision of a physician and which is intended for the specific dietary management of a disease or condition for which distinctive nutritional requirements, based on recognized scientific principles, are established by medical evaluation.
